In the raw food world, there are few giants taller than the Hippocrates Institute…that is why we were so excited to get a nod in their recent issue of Healing Our World Magazine.
But why is it exciting, exactly? Given the location of Hippocrates (Florida) and the Living Food Lab (Bali), it is quite unlikely that the article is going to generate a lot of new walk-in business.
I think when you try to do something out of the ordinary, like opening a living foods restaurant at a school, you occasionally (have to) wonder if you are a little nuts…that the idea that seemed so ‘right’ in your own mind was actually completely off base.
Sometimes you have to do it anyway.
This is unquestionably a project of passion. We believe that raising children’s food consciousness is as important as anything else they will learn as school. We think it is impossible to talk about environmental stewardship without taking a critical look at our food production system. We know that the global shift towards unnatural food choices and the rise in obesity and chronic disease are linked. Fortunately for us, the Green School, Bali agrees and helped us set up shop.
So, making our way into the Healing our World magazine is exciting because we love what we do, we love where we do it, and so are happy for so many people to hear about it! (and knowing the readership is in the 300,000 range doesn’t hurt, either…)
